This digital resource features an interview with Professor Richard Susskind during his time chairing the UK’s ODR Advisory Group back in 2015. In the video he talks about ODR, access to justice (A2J) and what an online dispute resolution system might look like. He also makes a compelling case for re-thinking how we look at dispute resolution, and legal practice in general.
Professor Susskind’s new book Online Courts and the Future of Justice (2019) is widely available.
